The Community Defender Newsletter

Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Community Defender, the newsletter of the East Baton Rouge Public Defender’s Office. The city of Baton Rouge and the community this Office serves has grown, and as such, we would like to provide this newsletter as a resource to that community.

By creating this newsletter, we hope to provide a continuing resource not only for our attorneys and staff to remain informed as to changes in the law, Office happenings, upcoming training opportunities, and other important information, but for local community members and organizations to remain informed of these things, as well. In doing so, we hope to foster greater understanding and connection between the Office and the East Baton Rouge community.
